Renewable energy sources will have priority distribution on the energy grid and are defined as: biomass, wind, solar, geothermal, tidal, and hydropower when potential yield does not surpass 20 MW.
The Decree sets out a number of ways in which the government will promote technological investigation and capacity, including the development of a National Plan for the Promotion of Renewal Energies and through co-ordination between regional governments, universities and technical schools, and the National Board of Science, Technology and Technological Innovation.
Lastly, the Legislative Decree modifies existing laws and decrees that regulate energy use in order to further prioritise the consumption of renewable energy.
